Someone is on the hunt for steam engine plans, and believes that master inventor, Nikolas Klaus, has them. Thought dead by most and forgotten by many, the quiet grandfather has been living for years in the sleepy mountain town of Minette, keeping his inventions mostly to himself and watching his granddaughter grow up.

Twelve-year-old Tee, and her two best friends, Elly and Richy, come together as the heroic Yellow Hoods in the face of life-threatening danger. Whose side or the Cochon brother on, and will they tip the balance? Will Nikolas' ties to one of the secret societies cost him Tee's life?

The world is 1800's-esque, with a thrilling history that is discovered throughout the series. Elements of fairy-tales are woven in, as if they were the real world events the inspired the tales and rhymes we know.

After meeting the author at When Words Collide (2015), I was inspired by his personal story. In addition to being dyslexic, he overcame a serious illness, which he wrote about in a memoir. `With that out of the way, he felt free and able to start writing fiction again. With a nudge from his daughter, he wrote Along Came a Wolf and created The Yellow Hoods series.`

Adam Dreece blogs, vlogs, FaceBook and Tweets! He is charming and a great example of up and coming Canadian talent!

I really enjoyed reading this YA book and I have the next two in the series lined up. I am sure I will be adding the upcoming Book 4 to my collection, as well.

Journal Entry 5 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Wednesday, October 21, 2015
An interesting start to the series. I was expecting more steampunk elements, but it says right there on the front of the book that it's an emergent steampunk series, so I guess things will get more steampunk-y in the other books. It was cool the see fairy tale elements as well, like with the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs. It'll be fun to see how the rest of the series unfolds.
